The Krestovsky Stadium, also called Zenit Arena, is a rectractable roof stadium in the western portion of Krestovsky Island in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It serves as home of FC Zenit Saint Petersburg. The stadium was opened in 2017 for 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup. Initially, the stadium was planned to be completed by December 2008, which was changed to late 2011, and was scheduled to be opened in 2017. The stadium has a capacity of 68,134 people. It is called Saint Petersburg Stadium during the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and 2018 FIFA World Cup. Interestingly enough the construction that was initially supposed to end in March 2009 continues until now, with “some cosmetic changes to be finished soon”. As of right now the stadium is 518% late and 548% over budget.


The competition between architectural project was won by Kisho Kurokawa's "The Spaceship". The design of the stadium is a modified and enlarged version of Toyota Stadium in Toyota City, Japan, which was also designed by Kurokawa. The stadium is being built on the location where the former Kirov Stadium used to stand before it was demolished.

In January 2009 the The St. Petersburg Times reported that the project was now to be funded by the city government of St Petersburg, with Gazprom switching to build a separate skyscraper project. City Hall had to step in after Gazprom declined to invest any further money into the stadium's construction.
